7:02 am
"today," with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on this monday morning, well past our bedtimes last night. from everything i hear, this is one of the great world series games ever. >> immediately in the record books. houston is oh, so close. we have quite a monday morning. we want to get to the news, that has washington and the nation on pins and needles this morning. >> robert mueller set to announce the first indictment of the investigation to russian ties during the 2016 election. we have two reports, starting with peter alexander. >> reporter: to you from here at the u.s. district courthouse. five months at the helm of the investigation, special counsel robert mueller will take a significant step today.
7:03 am
a u.s. official with firsthand knowledge of the process, confirming to nbc news, that mueller's office will make public an indictment. charges that for now remain sealed by order of a federal judge. as early as today, robert mueller's first target could be taken into custody. a federal grand jury in washington, days ago, approved the first criminal charges in the special investigation of the russian interference. >> we haven't been informed of who it is. >> reporter: the indictment remains sealed. those under scrutiny, includes paul manafort and michael flynn. mueller issuing subpoenas for documents and testimony related to both men. each of whom has denied wrongdoing. the president appears to be fuming, after a weekend round of golf and a night out at his exclusive d.c. hotel, president trump unloaded with a barrage of
7:04 am
tweets. blasting what he calls phony trump/russia collusion that doesn't exist. trying to direct attention to accusations against hillary clinton, demanding republicans do something. the president's lawyer, ty cobb, insisting the trump tweets are unrelated to the activities of the special counsel. what alleged crimes have been committed? that's also unclear. >> it will be really important whether this document involves 15-year-old business transactions or 15-day-old conversations with russia. >> reporter: the president's allies warning that alleged leaking of mueller's grand jury activity was against the law. >> you have to be very careful about this stuff. grand jury secrecy is important to the effectiveness of an investigation. >> reporter: that investigation, the latest political challenge for the president, whose approval rating just hit a ro
7:05 am
record low. just 38% of americans praising his performance. the lowest figure in modern times at this stage of a presidency. and so far, the white house has not commented directly on the expected first indictment. but the president himself is questioning the timing, suggesting that this russia talk is effectively just a deliberate distraction, saying that it's coming jux e ing just at the ti republicans are trying to pass tax cuts. back to you. >> peter alexander, thank you. we turn to nbc's justice correspondent, pete williams. pete, there's more that we don't know than do. what frare the frank mechanics? >> it's possible that mueller's office will tell the defendants what time to show up in court in response to a summons. it's more likely that whoever is du indicteded will be ainterested
7:06 am
and show up at the courthouse. the practice is for even white collar defendants to be arrested. >> after we find out who this is about and what it's about, what happens next? >> these people are brought to the federal courthouse in washington, just a few blocks from the capitol building. they will be booked, photographed and fingerprinted and brought before a magistrate judge for a brief hearing. the judge informs them of the charges and advises them of their rights, including to have a lawyer. and will discuss the conditions of their release. it's unlikely the prosecutors would ask to have them held in jail, pending any trial, which would be months away. whoever is there will be asked to surrender their passports. >> an indictment can be the beginning of a legal process, the end of an investigation. the big question is how this one might fit into the overall investigation that mueller's doing. >> it means this investigation
7:07 am
is moving quickly if it's starting to spin out indictments. we'll know more when we see the documents. one thing prosecutors often employ is to use these as a building block. a plea bargain to get the early defendants to help the government build a case against the higher-ups, savannah. >> we'll see if that's the strategy. pete, stick close by to that camera. we have a lot more to get to, including a coastal storm that's affected tens of millions, all the way up to new england. a lot of rain causing damage and travel delays. we're going to get to al in a moment. first, to morgan radford on cape cod in massachusetts. morgan, looks a little blustery there. >> especially the wind, matt. the eye of the storm is over cape cod. we haven't begun to feel its full extent. this has people are waking up

witch hunt. >> reporter: the ceo says he contacted the puerto rico power authority in early september. >> i found him on linkedin. >> you found him on linkedin. >> you used linkedin to get a $300 million contract? >> yeah. >> reporter: he strongly denies that ryan zinke, from whitefish, montana, or anyone else in the administration, helped him land the deal. fema had concerns about the cost and never reviewed the contract. >> it is corruption. somebody greased the wheels and did it very nicely. >> reporter: in a statement, whitefish says it's disappointed in the decision, that will only delay what the people of puerto rico want and deserve, to have the power restored quickly. >> show me another contractor that's here that has the presence that we do, that has a positive impact that's reenergizing actual power lines.
7:13 am
>> reporter: the whitefish energy ceo refutes the dispute they had two employees, when the actual number is 20 to 40 employees. puerto rico has paid whitefish more than $10 million. and 40 days after hurricane maria, about 70% of this island is still without power. >> unbelievable. gabe, thank you very much. now, to a new accusation in the wake of the harvey weinstein scandal. it's rocking hollywood. kevin spacey is apologizing this morning, after another actor made accusations that he made advances on him. and he was just 14 years old at the time. kate snow is with us now. >> anthony rapp is best known for his role in the broadway and movie versions of "rent." the actor said he felt compelled to tell his story now, after so many women came forward with accusations against harvey weinstein.
7:14 am
one of hollywood's best-known actors, kevin spacey, the latest star caught up in allegations. anthony rapp accusing spacey of making a sexual advance at a party 30 years ago when he was 14, and spacey was 26. overnight, spacey, a two-time oscar-winner, released a statement. i'm beyond horrified to hear his story. i honestly do not remember the encounter. it would have been over 30 years ago. but if i did behave then as he describ describes, for what would have been drunken behavior. and i'm sorry for the feelings he carried with him all these years. rapp says he invispacey invited a party. he picked me up like a groom picks up the bride over the threshold. then, he lays on top of me. rapp is currently in the cast of the tv show, "star trek:
7:15 am
discovery." spacey, who has been oscars said rapp's story encouraged me to address other things about my life. continuing in his statement, spacey added, as those closest to me know, in my life, i've had relationships with both men and women. i choose now to live as a gay man. i want to examine this honestly and openly. that drew criticism, saying that spacey's apology should not have been tied to a revelation of his sexual orientation. rapp says, i came forward with my story, standing on the shoulders of the many courageous women and men, who are speaking out. it comes as more women are revealing shocking, new allegations against harvey weinstein. annebelabella score ra breaking

his business ties to russia. for his part, president trump is trying to put the focus on his former rival, hillary clinton, tweeting out accusations against clinton and demanding investigators do something. the president's lawyer, ty cobb, saying the tweets are unrelated to the activities of the special counsel. the new revelations come while the president's approval rating hit a new low. according to the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, just 38% of americans approve of his performance. that's the lowest figure in modern times at this stage of his presidency. the president and republicans will try to keep the focus on their agenda this week, set to unveil the specifics of their tax plan this wednesday, matt. >> kristen welker, at the white house for us. thank you very much. oscar and otony award winne, kevin spacey, apologized over night after an accuser accused him of making an advance when he

fibromyalgia is thought to be caused by overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i'm glad my doctor prescribed lyrica. for some, lyrica delivers effective relief for moderate to even severe fibromyalgia pain. and improves function. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions, suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worse depression, unusual changes in mood or behavior, swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects: dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who've had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain, i can do more with my family. talk to your doctor today. see if lyrica can help. when i was 14 years old. so i really navigate the world by touch. when dove asked me to try out this body wash... i was excited that it was foam.

8:11 am
>> nbc news has learned that paul manafort, and rick gates will turn themselves in to face charges today. we want to get right to nbc's justice correspondent, pete williams. pete, good morning. we know who are the subjects of these indictments. do we know why? >> no. we don't know why. we haven't seen the court documents. it's interesting this is by summons. they've been told what time to report to the courthouse. they already -- we know mr. manafort left his house about 20 minutes ago, with his lawyer, presumably on their way to the courthouse. this is a picture of the suv that was carrying paul manafort and his lawyer, presumably headed for the u.s. courthouse here in washington. that means they were not arrested. sometimes in these white-collar nonviolent crime cases, they had arrested people and federal agents brought them to the courthouse. this is more of a gentleman's
8:12 am
agreement, where the prosecutors tell the lawyer, you have to show up at the courthouse at such and such a times. the judge issues a summons, which is a command for them to show up. they will be at the courthouse here in washington. they will be booked and have a hearing and federal appearance before a federal magistrate. >> because of the stage of the investigation we're in right now, because the indictments are still sealed, there's a wide range of charges that could be brought here. everything from money laundering, to obstruction to collusion and others. we know nothing about that. >> right. we have to remember to keep our eye on the ball. the special council was appointed to look at whether anybody in the u.s. helped the russians meddle in the election. one key might be if they bring a peripheral charge against these two people, will they be using that charge to try to get them to cooperate more with the investigation? in other words, say, this is the charge you face. if you will agree with us, to give us more information, we'll
8:13 am
give you a lesser charge, a plea bargain, in essence, to get them to cooperate. we'll see if that's what this is all about. >> let's go over to peter alexander at the district courthouse in washington, d.c. we don't know what conduct is going to be alleged here. and we don't know if it will stem from the work that manafort and gates did for the trump campaign. but so people are familiar, and you were there covering it, what role did manafort and gates play at what time period in the campaign? >> reporter: well, they played a significant role. to be clear, right in the heart of the campaign. burg the summer season. paul manafort was brought in to help candidate trump, with their concerns that the party may find some way to rip the nomination away from him. manafo manafort, the campaign chairman. his proteege was rick gates, wh served as a deputy campaign manager, as well. these two obviously were very close to then-candidate donald
8:14 am
trump. we're here at the u.s. district courthouse, where we have cameras on both sides, which may be our first opportunity to pose any questions to those men. manafort has spoken through his attorneys has continued to deny any wrongdoing in this. he has been under scrutiny was of his past relationship to foreign countries, including ukraine. it will be interesting to see what the charges are in this circumstance today. we're going to keep a close eye out and hope to have our first opportunity to see them in person a short time from now. >> peter, thank you very much. let's bring in jeremy bash, national security adviser for us. jeremy, based on what we know about paul manafort and we're speculating a bit here. based on what we know about his past, his jobs, his ties to ukraine, as peter mentioned, what is this looking like? >> you think of it as three
8:15 am
buckets. i don't think the firing of jim comey is at issue today. the sect is collusion between the trump campaign and russia during the election. we haven't seen the charges. but i don't think we're talk about 2016-related activities here. we're talking about other business deals between paul manafort and other politicians in yaw ukraine, as peter mentioned. he's a conduit in russian-backed interests and activities in washington. that's a chance for bob mueller to further investigate the collusion question. >> i want to go back to pete williams. if manafort and gates are facing charges this morning, as you mentioned, it may be a strategic play by the special counsel. you wouldn't expect this necessarily to be the end of the investigation into manafort and gates.
8:16 am
it's over, the indictments are out? >> by no means. and we know the special counsel is right in the middle of a pretty intense period of investigating. they had people before the grand jury last week, in that same courthouse you saw peter standing in front of a moment ago. they're deposing witnesses. so, they're right in the middle of it. and just because this indictment is filed, it doesn't mean the government -- that's the ends of the homework assignment on them. they can come back with a superseding indictment and file more charges. that's leverage they have over the defendants. >> knowing what you know about investigations like this, it's been interesting to hear people on both sides of the political aisle, some saying that mueller is moving too fast, and others saying he is moving too slowly. >> well, i think this is a sign he is moving along relatively quickly. it's just been a few months since they've been at this. a lot of people to investigate. this is a highly complex case.
8:17 am
one interesting thing here. they used a fairly heavy-handed approach against paul manafort when they searched his house. this time, they letting him show up to the courthouse. it's a somewhat gentler hand today. >> we're going to have much more on this throughout the day and an msnbc and now, we return most of you to "today." i'm matt lauer, alongside savannah guthrie. this has been an nbc news special report. all right, we want to head over to mr. roker for a check of the forecast. >> watching that big storm. over 1 million people without power from washington, d.c., all the way up into new england. amtrak has canceled trains between boston and new haven because of downed trees. a lot of schools being canceled. winds will be the biggest problem as the storm system moves into canada. the rain will end. the winds will decrease, but

8:21 am
entire life. >> reporter: but this morning, his latest proclamation drawing criticism from haim's mother, judy. saying if he finally releases names, for the sake of the victims, i'll be 100% behind him. but if he's waiting to release the names in the movie, i don't support that. he doesn't need $10 million to do it. corey feldman joins us live here. this is very personal for you. it's very emotional. it's something you talked about for years. let me start by asking you, how prevalent is what you're talking about in hollywood today? >> i believe there's a lot of darkness in hollywood right now. and i believe it's been there for quite some time. and as we've seen with the harvey weinstein scandal, it continues to unfold. new names come forward every day. and now, there's names of
8:22 am
misconduct with kevin spacey, a child actor who came forward today. it's going to continue unraveling. this is just the beginning. just the tip of the iceberg. everything you're seeing is building up to what i believe is going to be a dam breaking open. >> let me talk about this "corey's truth" effort. you want to raise $10 million for a duocumentary. >> i want to make a featured film. >> is it going to involve real people? real names of people in hollywood right now? >> it will be a very true story. we will have every name -- everybody that affected my life, i'm going to give the perspective that i can give what i viewed, what i experienced from a firsthand account. >> in all fairness, we've been down this road before with you. and you have promised in the past to name names. >> never. >> in your book, you said you were going to blow the lid off of this. >> when i wrote my book, the publishers prevented me from writing the names down. >> we didn't get the names.
8:23 am
>> exactly. >> we were promised last time. >> that's why i'm taking the matter into my own hands. this is why i need america's support. i need the world's support because i must make a film with no executives, no v.p.s, no lawyers. >> why do you need $10 million. film students make -- >> that's a film student. i'm going to self-celebrity, self-market, make the film and hire a team of attorneys that will protect me and the film. >> you raised under $200,000. is that right? it's going to take a long time to raise $10 million. >> we have two months. >> you told me, this is prevalent in hollywood. every day you wait, every day you try to raise money, i would imagine you believe that children are being abused by pedophiles in hollywood. >> absolutely. >> why are you talking to me? why aren't you talking to the police? >> i told the police. if anyone wants to go back to
8:24 am
1993, when i was interviewed by the santa barbara police department. i sat there and gave them the names. they are on record. but they were scanning michael jackson. all they cared about was trying about to find something on michael jackson. >> who you said did not abuse you. >> who michael was innocent. that's what the interview was about. i told them, he is not that guy. and they said, maybe you don't understand your friend. i know the difference between pedophiles and somebody that is not a pedophile because i have been molested. here's the names. investigate. there's thousands of people in hollywood that have the same information. why is it all on me? why is it, if i don't release the names in the next two months, six months or a year, i'm the bad guy. i'm the victim here. i'm the one who has been abused. i'm trying to come forward and do something about it. please, i'm sorry. there's thousands of people out there who have this information. any one of the chil actors that went to the teenage soda pop clubs with me as a kid, know who
8:25 am
those people are and who ran it. anybody can go back through history and say what was the name of that venue they were promoting and who ran that venue own who endorsed it. >> you say you have death threats because you have this information. >> yes. >> and have threatened to expose it. another reason i think to go to police. that's a crime to threaten someone's life. >> i've gone to the police with that, as well. >> what would be wrong about going to the police now again. didn't work out in santa barbara. >> there's a statute of limitations, matt, which protects people. it's not that way in new york. only where the movie industry is, conveniently enough in california. that's the seriousness of this. you cannot. if i were to go to the police, i would be sued. hencefor henceforth, i need a team of lawyers and a team of security to keep me safe to get this message done. i'm not playing around. it's serious stuff. i vow i will release every name i have any knowledge of, period. and nobody's going to stop me
8:26 am

delaware. we just 56 degrees in philadelphia this afternoon and low 50s for the suburbs. at the shore, a little bit warmer than inland areas of new jersey, topping out at 57. >> >> and that is your latest weather. on halloween, a lot of kids will be trick or treating for unicef, using this familiar box. carol stern is the president and ceo of unicef usa. by the way, happy birthday. >> thank you. >> almost seven decades, kids have been trick or treating with these boxes. what's new this year? >> we have slappy on the box. and all the proceeds are going to children impacted by the recent disasters. >> and a celebrity voice of jennifer lopez? >> jennifer lopez. this is so real for her. reminding kids, you, too, can help other kids.

8:36 am
but a lot of women are going with staying plat. >> my name is rebecca. i'm 41 years old. and i'm a breast cancer survivor. my husband and i really wanted to have a child together. and i wanted to keep my other breast in the hopes that i would be able to breast-feed her. >> you actually had reconstructive surgery, right? >> yes. i had the single mastectomy and reconstruction on that side. >> your mom fought breast cancer. an i'm told you made a promise to your mom. what was that promise? >> i promised her that i would do preventative surgeries and remove my other breast. and that was a difficult choice. there wasn't much about what to expect emotionally. and there certainly were not images of real women.
8:37 am
it's really about finding ways of just accepting ourselves and redefining beauty on our own terms. >> i'm shay sharp, i'm 39 years old and a two-time breast cancer survival. you hear you have to be age 40 to get a mammogram. in my mind, i had no reason that i should get it. >> to make the decision to go flat, as it's now called. it's a very personal decision. but probably not an easy one to make. >> not an easy decision. you know, it's not just physical. it's mental, as well. and not everyone can handle that. >> it's made you an advocate. you started your organization. is it pink wishes? >> yes. >> tell me about that. >> so, we grant final wishes to
8:38 am
young women and children who have been diagnosed or affected by terminal breast cancer. and this year, i said, row one, seat one, as her son graduated from high school. there's no way in the world i would have done pink wishes without having cancer. >> i'm 52 years old and i'm a breast cancer survivor. i have to tell my new husband, not only do i have cancer, but we can't have kids. now, you're going to get me to cry. >> years later -- >> yeah. >> you, again, have a symptom. and you find your own lump. this time, it comes back and you have breast cancer. >> yeah. unfortunately, as soon as i got
8:39 am
the expanders taken out and the implants put in, i got an infection. >> at this point, you made a decision, as they are now saying, go flat. it's a very personal decision. >> yes. it was tough. but i really enjoyed having breasts. they were part of my identity. and they were taken away from me. and now this, is the new sexy for me. >> you were able to still have a child. >> thank you, yes. it's been amazing. i'm sorry, i'm crying again. i told him yesterday what i would be doing. and he said, this is your mission, mom. >> i do feel strong and empowered. and i think that that comes from the inside. >> this is normal. it's unfortunate. but for me, it's made fortunate. >> i want women to see the beauty in that. that you're still sensual. someone still wants you. you're still awesome. you're still you, with or without them.
8:40 am
>> i'm authentic, beautiful, changed. >> blessed, humble, definitely humble. >> i'm strong, whimsical and i'm resilient. >> this is, obviously, a really personal decision. but i'm hearing from a lot of women on social media who say, i wasn't given this choice. i was told i was going to put you back to normal. and some of them want them taken out. and now, are wondering, will insurance cover it? >> think of all the complications that come with reconstruction. >> a lot of surgeries. >> joan, thank you for that. >> and thank you to all those brave women. really brave. >> thank you, joan. coming up next, we're going to have a revealing new look at the life of robert f. kennedy from our friend, chris matthews. first, this is "today" on nbc.
8:41 am
a bridge shut down over politics. their biggest triumph was a traffic jam. chris christie and kim guadagno's failures shortchanged our future. after 8 years- incomes are down, costs are up and our economy is crawling. we are better than this. i'm phil murphy
8:42 am
together we'll build a stronger, fairer economy that works for every new jersey family. christie and guadagno left new jersey stuck. i'm serious about moving new jersey forward.
8:43 am
we're back. it's 8:42. next year will mark 50 years since the assassination of robert f. kennedy. he was shot and killed at the ambassador hotel in los angeles, shortly after winning the california primary. chris matthews hosts "hardball" looks beyond the tragedy to the man himself, in a book called "bobby kennedy: the raging spirit." you're such a kennedy scholar. last week, we saw some of the kennedy files opened up. what struck you? >> i stayed up until midnight. and i found some interesting stuff on bobby. i had been working for years on bobby. even though he went along with the warren commission, he and ted kennedy, they believed in it for logical reasons. the parade route hadn't been set until the day before. how could anybody buput a
8:44 am
conspiracy together. he said, maybe going after the bad guys. >> bobby going after the mob. >> going after the god father. he had been going after castro. was one of those guys behind what happened in dallas? >> were they doing it in retribution to dallas? >> he was saying, it could have been me. he was doing the tough work of catching bad guys, especially mobsters. >> the book is such an interesting read. and so much of bobby's life was in comparison to jack, or reference to jack. i'll just stick with that. as little kids, how did their experiences differ? >> jack was a sunny prince. he was a happy-go-lucky, charming guy. it was said that jack was a realist pretending to be a romantic. jack was not a romantic. he was cold-blooded in many ways. but very charming. bobby came off as the ruthless
8:45 am
one. bobby was the good guy. he was the one who got us through the cuban missile crisis. he really pushed for civil rights. he said, go on television. you have to do this ping. he was at ole miss, george wallace. he did a lot of good things. this picture, the back of the book. this is what i was inspired to write this book about. this is a middle-class family. those people, saluting the guy. this is the america that's gone now. the unity of african-americans and white working-class people together, the same type of patriotism together. and i think bobby brought them together. and since then, they've been divided. that's the division in this country, now. >> that was bobby later in his political career. earlier in his career, he did a lot of the enforcement stuff. you tell a story, that i cringe over. the part about lbj and how jack kennedy dispatched bobby at the
8:46 am
convention in 1960. >> jack picked lbj because he needed the south. he didn't like johnson that much. i need this guy to carry texas, georgia and the southern states. as a roman catholic, i will have a hard time down there. johnson was the one spreading rumors about jack dying, he was sick. saying he was pro-nazi. and bobby did not forget this stuff. >> so, jack gets bobby into lbj's hotel room. and trying to shake him loose. and jack, of course, called up later, and said bobby isn't in the loop. a lot of times he -- >> he threw bobby under the bus. >> he needed him. he needed him to do the job. governors, go in the back room with a governor, and they come out thinking, i spent two hours with bobby. but jack was always loved. you know what it is? a friend of the family told me -- a member of the family. he spent his whole life chasing bad guys.
8:47 am
but the villains of this world create their own hells on earth. focus on the victims. >> chris, thank you so much. the book is called "bobby kennedy: a raging spirit." you can find out more about it at coming up next, a live performance he's a husband, father, veteran... but most of all, he's a fighter. chris brown has never been afraid to take on the big fights. that's why he stood up to republicans and democrats alike to fight the north jersey casinos and the takeover of atlantic city. chris brown is fighting to protect jobs in our region... a true champion for the working men and women of atlantic county.
8:48 am
on november 7th, let's keep him fighting for us. chris brown for state senate, he's on our side.
8:49 am
